The official commencement of the Energía Mayakan gas pipeline expansion was witnessed by key stakeholders, including Comisión Federal de Electricidad (CFE), Energía Mayakan, and representatives from the French Republic. This significant project aims to ensure the transportation of natural gas for energy generation in the Yucatan Peninsula.

Cécile Previeu, Global Executive Vice President of ENGIE, emphasized that this expansion will transform the lives of communities in southeastern Mexico. The project’s start marks a crucial milestone, enabling continuity in energy development plans across the four states traversed by the gas pipeline. It contributes to social well-being, economic growth, and energy security for the region.

Manuel Bartlett, the general director of CFE, celebrated the achievement, highlighting the importance of reversing neglect in the south-southeast. He emphasized that the peninsula’s solid development and future industrial progress are essential for its inhabitants.

Layda Sansores San Román, the governor of Campeche, described the project as a revolution, symbolizing hope and strength for the region. Ernesto Herrera, Secretary of Economic Development and Labor of Yucatán, emphasized the enormous potential unlocked by this new gas pipeline, fostering better opportunities through collaboration between federal, private, and local entities.

The expansion of Mayakan Energía provides access to over 567 million cubic feet per day of natural gas across 700 kilometers of pipeline, benefiting the states of Campeche, Chiapas, Tabasco, and Yucatan.
